PUPILS are celebrating across the Uttoxeter area after some 'fantastic' A-level results.

Students at Thomas Alleyne's enjoyed a pass rate of 98 per cent, with over 46 per cent of grades being A*, A or B.

Special celebrations will be enjoyed by Ella Kasperowicz, Susan Nash and Tom Roche, all of whom achieved 3 A*s.

Alleyne's pupils will be going on to universities across the country, including York, Liverpool, Bath, Manchester and Nottingham.

In addition, two students were successful in securing places at Oxford.

Charlotte Vickers will be studying English language and literature and Tom Munro will be studying physics.

Headteacher Julie Rudge commented: "These results are a credit to the hard work of staff and students and we are delighted that students have secured places in chosen areas of work or study."

Abbotsholme pupils also achieved great results, with 62 per cent of pupils getting A*-B grades at A-level, and 92 per cent gaining A*- E.

Steve Fairclough, Abbotsholme's headmaster added: "We are incredibly proud of all of our pupils for the hard work they have put in and the excellent attitude they have shown to study and learning."

Denstone College achieved record- breaking results, with 37 per cent achieving a top A* or A grade and 78 per cent of all entries achieving a B grade.

There were many individual success stories, including no less than 13 upper sixth students gaining at least three A grades or better.

Leading the way was Megan Fairclough who achieved 3 A* and an A grade, securing her a place at Murray Edwards College, Cambridge, to read Psychological and Behavioural Sciences.

Headteacher David Derbyshire commented: "I am utterly delighted with these results. They are the result of a lot of hard work by the students themselves, supported by high quality teaching."

At Abbots Bromley School for Girls, more than 83 per cent achieved grades from A* to B.

Abbots Bromley School's Executive Head, Victoria Musgrave, said, "We are delighted with these results and it means all of our students will be able to access their courses of choice at university.
